Sea Button Turquoise Braided Seed Beads

About this design:

My husband's 90 year old mother had passed on and she had a bunch of old buttons that were passed on to me. This button(if you can see it) has all sorts of sea creatures and that inspired me to make this bracelet.


I used turquoise waxed linen and turquoise seed beads and braided them on (using my instructions from my other Braided Wax Linen Seed Bead Bracelets) and I used the special button which means a lot to me. Lisa LaBarre-Kurz

    Fabulous way to re-purpose this button. So stinkin’ cute with those sea creatures in it. And it holds a lovely memory of who owned this button before it was passed on to you. Hopefully there are more you’ll be able to use. :)

    Wow! I love old buttons and have a collection of buttons given to me from my mom. Great idea. I had been thinking about a wrap bracelet, but love the braided and the colors.
